The data about Individuals working in organisations is used to contact them for cooperation opportunities or running projects.

Part of the data is accessed by ICA members based outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

Any financial data is only used for the purpose of honouring the contracts with the relevant party or to respect Belgian legal obligations.

ICA does not provide any Personal data to third parties except if such disclosure is necessary in order to protect legitimate interests of ICA or if it is required or permitted by law.

Duration the Personal Data is kept

ICA does not keep Personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and processed.

Confidentiality of the Personal data

ICA handles all Personal data in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and the legal obligations applicable to the processing of Personal data.

ICA has adopted adequate measures to protect all the Personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, un-authorised disclosure of, or access to, Personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.

ICA optimizes the security of the Personal data by i.a. using encryption, firewalls, password protections and limiting the access to the Personal data. However, the transmission of information via the internet can never be completely secure and the provision of Personal data remains at ones own risk at all times.
